Robust loose forward Jone Navori and winger Aporosa Tabulawaki have forced their way into the Fiji Airways Fijian Drua’s starting line-up in tommorrow’s NSW Country Eagles crucial National Rugby Championship (NRC) clash at Suva’s ANZ Stadium.

They are among the four changes made by Drua head coach Senirusi Seruvakula who has moved Navori to man the openside flanker’s berth with captain Mosese Voka on the blindside.

Tough Namosi tighthead prop Alivereti Rabukawaqa gets his second run as well, stepping in for injured Mosese Ducivaki who has been ruled out of theNRC.

Livewire hooker Mesulame Dolokoto who put on a sterling performance coming in as a substitute in the 34-31 win over Sydney Rays last week, finally gets his chance to start.

In the backs, Tabulawaki starts on the wing while blockbusting Avete Daveta is at centre.

Kick off at 3pm.
